2015 Sailing Season

The Schooner American Eagle offers a good mix of three-, four- and six-night cruises with a few shorter ones and a couple longer ones.  If you’re looking for something unique during the 2015 sailing season, consider joining us for 8 days in June to travel to Stellwagen Bank at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay or for 11 days in July to explore the Maine coastline beyond Acadia National Park to the Canadian border. A perennial favorite is the 6-day trip over Labor Day to sail to Massachusetts for the Gloucester Schooner Festival.

5% discount for new guests

Alternate Pricing?

Yes, we donate a number of trips (usually a trip for two) to charities and non-profits every year.  No, its not a tax deduction for us; but it may be for you.

This year we have donated to the Penobscot Marine Museum here in Maine for their auction fundraiser in July, and to the Elissa Plankowners’ Syndicate auction in Texas in June.

The Maine Windjammer Association photo contest.  First prize: a free windjammer trip!
